August Belmont II sends a manuscript letter of thanks for allowing him to enter a horse.
Manuscript Letter Signed: "August Belmont", 1p, 4¼x7. 23 Nassau Street, New York, 1902 February 7. To Hon. George R. Bidwell, Collector of Customs.

Everything is in order and the papers are signed." Belmont (1853-1924) took full control of August Belmont & Company upon his father's death in 1890. Belmont was also a dominant figure in horseracing. The year after this letter, the Westchester Racing Association, which Belmont had helped found, began building the Belmont Park racetrack (1903-1905), named after his father. Lightly creased. Lightly stained and soiled. 2 file holes at upper blank margin.
